Falcons Fly Past Cougars in Armed Forces Bowl

Air Force tops Houston 47-20

Asher Clark and Jared Tew each ran for more than 100 yards with two touchdowns and Air Force's top-ranked passing defense had six interceptions against NCAA passing leader Case Keenum, leading the Falcons to a 47-20 victory over Houston in the Armed Forces Bowl on Thursday.

Air Force's plan to limit Keenum and the nation's most explosive offense worked almost flawlessly. The Falcons (8-5) ran for 402 yards to go with Tim Jefferson's effective passing (10 of 14 for 161 yards), holding the ball for 41 minutes and then coming up with the big defensive plays.
